Palm Sunday

1st. Reading: Acts 7: 30-36

30 And when forty years had passed, an Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire in a bush, in the wilderness of Mount Sinai. 

31 When Moses saw it, he marveled at the sight; and as he drew near to observe, the voice of the Lord came to him, 

32 saying, ‘I am the God of your fathers–the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses trembled and dared not look. 

33 ‘Then the Lord said to him, “Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground. 

34I have surely seen the oppression of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their groaning and have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt.” ‘ 

35 This Moses whom they rejected, saying, ‘Who made you a ruler and a judge?’ is the one God sent to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the Angel who appeared to him in the bush. 

36He brought them out, after he had shown wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red Sea, and in the wilderness forty years.

2nd. Reading : Romans 10: 5-18

5 For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.” 

6 But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above) 

7 or, ” ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 

9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 

10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 

11For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”

12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 

13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 

14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 

15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” 

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 

17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 

18 But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: “Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”

Gospel: John 12 : 12-19

12 The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 

13 took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: “Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ The King of Israel!” 

14 Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: 

15 “Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, Sitting on a donkey’s colt.”

16 His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him. 

17 Therefore the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, bore witness. 

18 For this reason the people also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. 

19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, “You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!”

القرائة الأولى : أعمال ٧ : ٣٠ – ٣٦

30 «وَلَمَّا كَمِلَتْ أَرْبَعُونَ سَنَةً، ظَهَرَ لَهُ مَلاَكُ الرَّبِّ فِي بَرِّيَّةِ جَبَلِ سِينَاءَ فِي لَهِيبِ نَارِ عُلَّيْقَةٍ.

31 فَلَمَّا رَأَى مُوسَى ذلِكَ تَعَجَّبَ مِنَ الْمَنْظَرِ. وَفِيمَا هُوَ يَتَقَدَّمُ لِيَتَطَلَّعَ، صَارَ إِلَيْهِ صَوْتُ الرَّبِّ:

32 أَنَا إِلهُ آبَائِكَ، إِلهُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِلهُ إِسْحَاقَ وَإِلهُ يَعْقُوبَ. فَارْتَعَدَ مُوسَى وَلَمْ يَجْسُرْ أَنْ يَتَطَلَّعَ.

33 فَقَالَ لَهُ الرَّبُّ: اخْلَعْ نَعْلَ رِجْلَيْكَ، لأَنَّ الْمَوْضِعَ الَّذِي أَنْتَ وَاقِفٌ عَلَيْهِ أَرْضٌ مُقَدَّسَةٌ.

34 إِنِّي لَقَدْ رَأَيْتُ مَشَقَّةَ شَعْبِي الَّذِينَ فِي مِصْرَ، وَسَمِعْتُ أَنِينَهُمْ وَنَزَلْتُ لأُنْقِذَهُمْ. فَهَلُمَّ الآنَ أُرْسِلُكَ إِلَى مِصْرَ.

35 «هذَا مُوسَى الَّذِي أَنْكَرُوهُ قَائِلِينَ: مَنْ أَقَامَكَ رَئِيسًا وَقَاضِيًا؟ هذَا أَرْسَلَهُ اللهُ رَئِيسًا وَفَادِيًا بِيَدِ الْمَلاَكِ الَّذِي ظَهَرَ لَهُ فِي الْعُلَّيْقَةِ.

36 هذَا أَخْرَجَهُمْ صَانِعًا عَجَائِبَ وَآيَاتٍ فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ، وَفِي الْبَحْرِ الأَحْمَرِ، وَفِي الْبَرِّيَّةِ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً.

القرائة الثانية  : رومية ١٠ : ٥ – ١٨

 5 لأَنَّ مُوسَى يَكْتُبُ فِي الْبِرِّ الَّذِي بِالنَّامُوسِ: «إِنَّ الإِنْسَانَ الَّذِي يَفْعَلُهَا سَيَحْيَا بِهَا .»

6 وَأَمَّا الْبِرُّ الَّذِي بِالإِيمَانِ فَيَقُولُ هكَذَا: «لاَ تَقُلْ فِي قَلْبِكَ: مَنْ يَصْعَدُ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ؟» أَيْ لِيُحْدِرَ الْمَسِيحَ،

7 «أَوْ: مَنْ يَهْبِطُ إِلَى الْهَاوِيَةِ؟» أَيْ لِيُصْعِدَ الْمَسِيحَ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ

8 لكِنْ مَاذَا يَقُولُ؟ «اَلْكَلِمَةُ قَرِيبَةٌ مِنْكَ، فِي فَمِكَ وَفِي قَلْبِكَ» أَيْ كَلِمَةُ الإِيمَانِ الَّتِي نَكْرِزُ بِهَا:

9 لأَنَّكَ إِنِ اعْتَرَفْتَ بِفَمِكَ بِالرَّبِّ يَسُوعَ، وَآمَنْتَ بِقَلْبِكَ أَنَّ اللهَ أَقَامَهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ، خَلَصْتَ.

10 لأَنَّ الْقَلْبَ يُؤْمَنُ بِهِ لِلْبِرِّ، وَالْفَمَ يُعْتَرَفُ بِهِ لِلْخَلاَصِ.

11 لأَنَّ الْكِتَابَ يَقُولُ: «كُلُّ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ لاَ يُخْزَى.»

12 لأَنَّهُ لاَ فَرْقَ بَيْنَ الْيَهُودِيِّ وَالْيُونَانِيِّ، لأَنَّ رَبًّا وَاحِدًا لِلْجَمِيعِ، غَنِيًّا لِجَمِيعِ الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ بِهِ.

13 لأَنَّ «كُلَّ مَنْ يَدْعُو بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ يَخْلُصُ.» 

14 فَكَيْفَ يَدْعُونَ بِمَنْ لَمْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِهِ؟ وَكَيْفَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِمَنْ لَمْ يَسْمَعُوا بِهِ؟ وَكَيْفَ يَسْمَعُونَ بِلاَ كَارِزٍ؟

15 وَكَيْفَ يَكْرِزُونَ إِنْ لَمْ يُرْسَلُوا؟ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ: «مَا أَجْمَلَ أَقْدَامَ الْمُبَشِّرِينَ بِالسَّلاَمِ، الْمُبَشِّرِينَ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ.»

16 لكِنْ لَيْسَ الْجَمِيعُ قَدْ أَطَاعُوا الإِنْجِيلَ، لأَنَّ إِشَعْيَاءَ يَقُولُ: «يَا رَبُّ مَنْ صَدَّقَ خَبَرَنَا؟»

17 إِذًا الإِيمَانُ بِالْخَبَرِ، وَالْخَبَرُ بِكَلِمَةِ اللهِ.

18 لكِنَّنِي أَقُولُ: أَلَعَلَّهُمْ لَمْ يَسْمَعُوا؟ بَلَى! «إِلَى جَمِيعِ الأَرْضِ خَرَجَ صَوْتُهُمْ، وَإِلَى أَقَاصِي الْمَسْكُونَةِ أَقْوَالُهُمْ. »

إنجيل يوحنا ١٢ : ١٢ – ١٩

 12 وَفِي الْغَدِ سَمِعَ الْجَمْعُ الْكَثِيرُ الَّذِي جَاءَ إِلَى الْعِيدِ أَنَّ يَسُوعَ آتٍ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ،

13 فَأَخَذُوا سُعُوفَ النَّخْلِ وَخَرَجُوا لِلِقَائِهِ، وَكَانُوا يَصْرُخُونَ: «أُوصَنَّا! مُبَارَكٌ الآتِي بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ! مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ!  »

14 وَوَجَدَ يَسُوعُ جَحْشًا فَجَلَسَ عَلَيْهِ كَمَا هُوَ مَكْتُوبٌ:

15 «لاَ تَخَافِي يَا ابْنَةَ صِهْيَوْنَ. هُوَذَا مَلِكُكِ يَأْتِي جَالِسًا عَلَى جَحْشٍ أَتَانٍ .»

16 وَهذِهِ الأُمُورُ لَمْ يَفْهَمْهَا تَلاَمِيذُهُ أَوَّلاً، وَلكِنْ لَمَّا تَمَجَّدَ يَسُوعُ، حِينَئِذٍ تَذَكَّرُوا أَنَّ هذِهِ كَانَتْ مَكْتُوبَةً عَنْهُ، وَأَنَّهُمْ صَنَعُوا هذِهِ لَهُ.

17 وَكَانَ الْجَمْعُ الَّذِي مَعَهُ يَشْهَدُ أَنَّهُ دَعَا لِعَازَرَ مِنَ الْقَبْرِ وَأَقَامَهُ مِنَ الأَمْوَاتِ.

18 لِهذَا أَيْضًا لاَقَاهُ الْجَمْعُ، لأَنَّهُمْ سَمِعُوا أَنَّهُ كَانَ قَدْ صَنَعَ هذِهِ الآيَةَ.

19 فَقَالَ الْفَرِّيسِيُّونَ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ: «انْظُرُوا! إِنَّكُمْ لاَ تَنْفَعُونَ شَيْئًا! هُوَذَا الْعَالَمُ قَدْ ذَهَبَ وَرَاءَهُ! »

Sayings of the Saints

Lord… you guide us, but we leave you and look for the world’s guidance and its consolation, then we fail but we find you the same. We are then aware of our transgression against you.
يارب.. أنت ترشدنا، ولكننا نتركك و نبحث عن إرشاد العالم و تعزيته، ثم نفشل فنجدك كما كنت. عندئذ نحس بخطئنا نحوك
